WINONA, MN (WXOW)—St. Matthew's Lutheran School, in Winona, hosted the first News 19 Weather Academy of the school year.

Meteorologists Dan Breeden, Alex Kirchner and Madeline Sky demonstrated the science of weather to students.

They learned about basic weather concepts through experiments like the dry-ice bubble and the egg in the bottle trick.

But the kids definitely had their favorites.

"That it's been sunny," Spencer Schossow, first grader said.

"The experiments," Trevor Clemmensen, first grader said. "Because they're cool."

"The egg drop," Aubrey Paluvicki, fourth grader said. "I kind of liked the explosion."

"It was cool when the bubble popped and all of the steam came out," Rachel Fabian, seventh grader said.

"The egg thing," Alecia Paluvicki, seventh grader said. "I liked when it pounded on the bottom of the jar."

The next Weather Academy is at Hintgen Elementary in La Crosse on October 11.  For more information on scheduling a Weather Academy email Alex Kirchner at
